Two sides who've made impressive starts to the League One season lock horns this weekend as Stevenage face Portsmouth.
Stevenage currently sit 5th in League One with three wins and one loss from their first four games of the campaign.
Stevenage kicked off with a 1-0 win over Northampton Town followed by successive wins over Shrewsbury Town, 2-0, and Cambridge United, 2-1.
The Boro finally fell to defeat as they lost 2-0 to Reading last week but having been reduced to ten men after Nathan Thompson was sent off in the 22nd minute they probably won't put too much emphasis on the defeat.
Steve Evans' side have made an excellent start to the season amidst promotion to from League Two and they'll feel well placed to mount a play-off push from hereon out, even if that is a long shot.
Stevenage have an expected goals against rate of just 1.05 xGA, the third best rate in the league, so Steve Evans will be mightily delighted with his side's defensive solidity going into the next few weeks of the campaign.
This is a tough game for Stevenage to attempt rebound from defeat in but the mood around the club is still ecstatic so don't count them out in this one.
Portsmouth currently sit 6th in League One with two wins and two draws from their first four games of the season.
Pompey kicked off their campaign with a 1-1 draw at home to Bristol Rovers followed by consecutive wins over Leyton Orient, 4-0, and Exeter City, 1-0, before a 0-0 draw with Cheltenham Town.
Few expected Portsmouth to mount a serious play-off push this season but they've started the campaign in fairly encouraging fashion.
They've been an excellent defensive side having conceded just once in four games with all of their last three games seeing them keep clean sheets.
Additionally, their expected goals against rate is the 6th best in the league, currently 1.17 xGA per game, so they have a very solid foundation to build from.
They also currently have the best expect goals for rate, currently at 1.90 xG per game, so if they can find a way to convert more chances into goals they could become a fearsome outfit.
This encounter feels like two sides set to play out a closely contested ninety minutes and it could be a tough one to call.
Portsmouth will want to rebound from a disappointing draw at Cheltenham last time out and they may just do that here.
Former Stevenage vs. Portsmouth prediction, we're going for a 1-0 win for the away side.
